    What do you guys do about posting your work online? If you noticed, the colors become compressed and die out when you upload them online, therefore making the pic look like shit. I thought about saving as BMP but it doesnt change it at all. It makes me mad that the pics only look good when you open it in photoshop

    I use raw files btw

    open it in photoshop vs web. you can clearly see how the colors are much richer in ps

    I used to have this problem, go to edit > convert to profile

    I typically use sRGB IEC61966-2.1, adobe (ace) engine, relative colorimetric intent, and all the shit checked.

    raw files save their color space in another thing so that when you export/save it, that information is lost unless you convert the color profile before saving it. So just do that, and you should be good.

    Your color space appears to be borked.

    Remove sRGB colorspace:

    I've noticed that saving a jpg off PS my photos get fucked up when I upload them, but when I save them as Jpgs from Lightroom they look exactly the same as how I saved them. Until I find a better method I just open the Tif files in LR and save them as JPGs from there after I play with them in PS.
